ALL ABOUT TMS

HISTORY OF TMS

The concept of using magnets to stimulate the human brain and other parts of the body in attempt to treat diseases can be tracked back to more than 100 years ago. The first modern Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) device was introduced in 1985 by Anthony Barker and colleagues. The physics behind this technique was originally discovered by Michael Faraday in 1881, who was able to create a magnetic field by running electricity through a coil. The changing or alternating magnetic field can also affect conductors in its vicinity, such as another metal coil conductor or neurons in the brain. In TMS, when applying the magnetic field generated by a coil to the head, the brain will be permeated quite easily by the Magnetic Field and will affect the neurons. When the magnetic field intensified or changed quick enough, it affects the neurons by depolarizing them and making them release the neurotransmitters that regulate brain functions.

PROVEN RESULTS

The FDA approved rTMS in 2008 as a treatment to alleviate symptoms of depression, in which patients have not found relief from antidepressant medication. It has also been studied as a possible treatment for a number of other disorders, such as schizophrenia, pain, stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and more.

At Antidote TMS, we are delighted to see so many of our patients respond successfully, as they experience the great benefits that TMS has to offer.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING!

BARBARA K. - Owasso, OK.

“I was highly skeptical and didn't really believe that something that seems so simple and non-invasive, could really work. It took me until the third week to really understand and accept that the depression was lifted, and that it was the most transforming thing that happened to me in my lifetime. It’s been life changing for me”

MEREDITH K. - Tulsa, OK

"TMS has helped me to sleep better and has helped make my pain from fibromyalgia more manageable.  My chronic  pain has decreased and since I'm sleeping  better, I feel better each day and I'm able to be much more productive."

MIKE N. - Rogers, AR

“As the sessions went on, I started feeling more energy, so I knew I was getting back to my normal self. I was smiling more, even when I went in for my sessions. I never had so much energy, been so happy, it’s wonderful feeling this way - this is what everyone should feel like.”
